Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

Her primary areas of study are Ecology, Biodiversity, Frugivore, Species richness and Seed dispersal. Many of her studies involve connections with topics such as Biological dispersal and Ecology. Her Biodiversity research incorporates themes from Ecology, Ecological niche and Land use.

Her studies examine the connections between Frugivore and genetics, as well as such issues in Stratification, with regards to Niche, Ficus, Obligate, Understory and Secondary forest. Katrin Böhning-Gaese combines subjects such as Tropical climate, Biomass, Spatial heterogeneity and Guild with her study of Species richness. Her Seed dispersal research includes elements of Ecological network and Fragmentation.

Her most cited work include:

  • Moving in the Anthropocene : global reductions in terrestrial mammalian movements (350 citations)
  • The worldwide variation in avian clutch size across species and space. (255 citations)
  • An estimate of the number of tropical tree species (230 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Biodiversity, Seed dispersal, Species richness and Frugivore. Her study brings together the fields of Biological dispersal and Ecology. Her study in Biological dispersal is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Spatial ecology, Range and Animal ecology.

Her biological study deals with issues like Environmental resource management, which deal with fields such as Ecosystem services. In her study, Nectar is inextricably linked to Pollination, which falls within the broad field of Seed dispersal. Her work carried out in the field of Species richness brings together such families of science as Agroforestry, Secondary forest, Vegetation, Species diversity and Spatial heterogeneity.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (80.35%)
  • Biodiversity (25.76%)
  • Seed dispersal (27.07%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Ecology (80.35%)
  • Biodiversity (25.76%)
  • Frugivore (22.27%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Ecology, Biodiversity, Frugivore, Species richness and Ecosystem are her primary areas of study. Her Ecology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Seed dispersal. Her research in Biodiversity intersects with topics in Tropical climate, Environmental planning, Environmental resource management and Taiga.

Her Frugivore study combines topics in areas such as Gamma diversity, Generalist and specialist species and Geographical distance. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Species richness, Taxonomic rank is strongly linked to Species diversity. Her Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biomass and Biological dispersal.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Climate–land-use interactions shape tropical mountain biodiversity and ecosystem functions (99 citations)
  • Long-term declines of European insectivorous bird populations and potential causes. (46 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Biodiversity

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Global change and Foraging. Her Ecology study frequently involves adjacent topics like Statistics. Her Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ecology and Ecosystem model.

Her Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Tropical climate, Biomass, Species richness and Land use. Her Global change research includes elements of Arid and Environmental resource management. She works mostly in the field of Foraging, limiting it down to concerns involving Habitat and, occasionally, Spatial analysis.
